8/11/2020 - CAS(E)ing Tuesday #264 - It's Your Day

 Happy Tuesday – today’s card is using CAS(E)ing Tuesday on FB and it’s from page 72 of the current annual catalog. I decided to use up some of my current 2019-2021 In-Colors DSP for this challenge. I cut of stripes of DSP and the square is using the Stitched Shaped Dies. I also did a fun *tapping* technique on the floral part where I inked up Purple Posy first and then *tap* it with Rococo Rose. I hope you like this card I am sharing today.

8/7/2020 - TGIF Challenge & Fab Friday - Let's Celebrate You

 Happy Friday – Today’s card is using 2 challenges – Fab Friday (sketch) and TGIF Challenge (color). Lately I am trying to do more colors challenges and love combining them with a good sketch. This card is more or less inspired by Mindy B’s card. I just love her style and been following here even when I was in CA. I used the Seaside Notion images (sand dollars and shell) and then color in some part of with Magenta Madness. I don’t have the Wshiper White embossing powder so instead I used White Craft Ink. I enjoyed making this card and thanks for stopping by!

8/6/2020 - Hand Stamped Sentiments & The Spot - Coffee

Today’s card is using 2 challenges – Hand Stamped Sentiment for colors & The Spot for coffee. I don’t normally do color challenges but this Press On stamp set makes it super easy because you can just use the colors on these coffee mugs! I also used 2 different dies to make them really pop. The coffee bean in the background is stamped in the same color as the cardstock! It might be a little hard to see but I did used a little Wink A Stella on some of the coffee mug. I enjoyed making this card and I hope you like my creation as well.

8/5/2020 - The Paper Funday Challenge - Bugaboo Stamps: Anything Goes with Twist: Back to School

Welcome back to another month here at The Paper Funday Challenge. Today's card is using Bugaboo stamp - Puppy Love image. This doggy is just too cute and I really want to showcase him so I got multiple prints of him and cut one out to layer on top of my main image and I sponge around it to create the background color for him. Then I used the Stampin' Blends for his body and markers for the heart. I really like how it turned out and I made it into a LOVE card. I hope you like this card I am sharing today and be sure to check out everyone's creation and join us at the challenge.
